She's Good Enough To Be Your Baby's Mother And She's Good Enough to Vote With You

Lyrics: Alfred Bryan (3)

Music: Herman Paley
Year: 1916
Genre: Traditional
Country: Canada / USA(3)


No man is greater than his mother
No man is half so good
No man is better than the wife he loves
Her love will guide him
What 'ere beguile him

She's good enough to love you and adore you
She's good enough to bear your troubles for you
And if your tears were falling today
Nobody else would kiss them away
She's good enough to warm your heart with kisses
When your lonesome and blue
She's good enough to be your baby's mother
And she's good enough to vote with you

Man plugs the world in war and sadness
She must protest in vain
Let's hope and pray someday we'll hear her pain
Stop all your madness, I bring you gladness

She's good enough to love you and adore you
She's good enough to bear your troubles for you
And if your tears were falling today
Nobody else would kiss them away
She's good enough to warm your heart with kisses
When your lonesome and blue She's good enough to be your baby's mother
And she's good enough to vote with you

She's good enough to give you old Abe Lincoln
She good enough to give you Brandon Sherman
Robert E. Lee and Washington too
She was so true she gave them to you
She's good enough to give you Teddy Roosevelt
Thomas A. Edison too.
She's good enough to give you Woodrow Wilson
And she's good enough to vote with you.
